Flexibilization - Flexibility assessment for the NTPC plants Dadri and Simhadri
Indian thermal power plant operators are confronted with the same challenges that German operators have recently encountered. Both countries aim at a transition of their energy systems, with the share of renewable energies continuously rising. India has set itself ambitious goals for the expansion of renewables: Its installed capacity should increase to 175 GW by 2022. Thus, the residual load has to remain very flexible so that it can cover all potential scenarios. Within the “Task Force Flexibility” of the ”Indo-German Energy Forum”, STEAG Energy Services GmbH has conducted a flexibility study to assess the key flexibility parameters (start-up time, ramp rate, minimum load) of the coal-fired power plants Dadri and Simhadri. In addition, measures have been provided to improve the flexibility including an implementation schedule.
